Ethical Building Team Works Together in El Salvador

G.O.D. International's "Ethical Building Team," assembled in El Salvador to practice some innovative techniques, like earthbag building, grey water irrigation, and limewash, on the organization's property. This allows us to both demonstrate to the surrounding area technologies for environmental improvement, and to enhance competency and efficiency in the task itself.
